Our tuition costs are dramatically lower than our peers. At $14,400 for the full 2-year program, our tuition is almost 50% less than the average 2-year masters of creative writing program at an in-state public university, and more than 80% less than the same program from a private school.
We’re committed to ensuring that every student can graduate from the School of Kingdom Writers without any student debt. Our low tuition cost is an important factor.
For students that truly want to write and to affect the media for Jesus, this is absolutely the best program available. There are a few really good reasons why we can and do charge less than our peers.
This is all we do. We’re not funding research, athletics, or student groups, nor are we subsidizing unrealistic or outdated programs and courses. We must recover our annual costs in order to remain sustainable, but we’re not trying to expand or pay for anything else.
Our program is setup to be 100% efficient for the specific mission the Lord has given us.
No frills. You won’t find an immaculately manicured quad on our campus. You won’t find a standalone library, student center, recreation center, or health clinic. There are no intramural sports leagues. You’ll find a single building, adequately maintained and reasonably aesthetic, filled with books, workstations, and expert staff.
There’s a public library down the street, a variety of beautiful city and state parks to visit, as well as churches and recreation centers to build a wider community. Students may even find an opportunity to share the love of Jesus while they’re out there.
No scholarships. At many universities, some students pay full price, often accumulating significant student debt, in order to subsidize the cost of scholarships given to other students.
At the School of Kingdom Writers, everyone pays their fair share. We keep the cost low for everyone and have programs in place to help students raise funds for tuition and graduate debt free. If a particular student would like to voluntarily pay more in order to alleviate the financial burden on another student, I’m sure we can arrange that.
We’re small. Sometimes size brings an economy of scale and the cost per unit goes down. But as we see with universities, large size can also lead to ballooning costs and unnecessary administrative bloat.
We don’t retain a legal team, an ombudsman, or a donor relations team, this all results in savings for the student.
Our staff are ministers. Our staff could be paid more elsewhere. They take less money because they believe in our mission and the good work our students are called to do. Some of our staff and helpers are volunteers.
Donor-funded, debt-free launch. The launch of our organization is 100% donor funded. Students aren’t paying for our startup costs. This platform has been generously provided by a community of believers that are excited to see the Kingdom advance through this mission.
We operate without debt, which ensures the lowest cost of money. Student tuition does not pay interest owed to a lender, it pays for exactly what the student receives.
Students need only pay for the real and direct costs associated with their enrollment in the program.
For these reasons, we can offer a better program at a lower cost. We are 100% optimized for the specific mission the Lord has called us to.
Not only can we offer our students a great rate on tuition, but our ministry will be 100% self-sustainable by fall of 2023. We will continue to advance the Kingdom without any additional investment from the broader community of believers. God is good!

This mission will be fully self-sustainable by the end of 2023. Until then, we just need a little help, and we’re so close! We’re 350 people away from completely funding our full-time campus. Will you take a step of faith and support this mission today?
